Each ink hole has communicating therewith a channel formed in one side of the layer and allowing passage of ink to a transversely located position upon the layer, the transversely located position aligning with a slot formed through an adjacent layer of the laminate. The laminated ink distribution structure is fixed to a distribution housing via which different inks are conveyed from an ink cassette.
